    Hi Guys,
    I'm new here, so be gentle :cool:

    I'm looking to buy a Phantom but I'm tying myself in knots with which one to buy.
    I'm looking for good standard of photo/video recording but I can live with a good DJI with no camera and get a camera at a later date.
    I do photography and I have a few Weddings booked for next year so was looking to incorporate this into the package.

    Any ideas please?

    P.s I'm in the UK

    It'll cost more money to purchase a quadcopter without a camera -- and, later add it. I'd suggest either the Phantom 3 Advanced or Professional. You can compare the differences here.

    Don't forget that the Advanced has a lower bit rate live view that translates to a lower quality image on larger devices or HDMI out, so go with the Pro version to avoid this.

    Also, don't forget that if you're planning to use it commercially (i.e. getting paid for results) you need to be certified...lots of money!

    Put your location in your profile so people won't be providing US information.

    That should have been a requirement when signing up for an account here.
